Short post: So I made these new button things for my sidebar to tidy it up and I think they are ace…they link to my various profiles and other things, check them out >> 🙂
I also discovered this thing called Instagram, have you heard of it? 😉 Haha, yeah I know, slow kiwi is slow.
I have one photo so far, I just added it from my phone so I don’t look like a complete n00b.
Spoiler alert: it’s a photo of Harriet sleeping on my Lady Grey WHILE I was trying to sew it! Hot damn she loves that wool! So feel free to follow me and then I can follow you. I’ll really only post sewing stuff, sneak peaks etc…
And because I hate picture-less posts here’s some fabric I may have bought recently, maybe for a BHL Anna 😉
I love your ‘buttons’. I want to do this for my site, as right now, I’ve just downloaded the graphics from the various sites and have them on my sidebar. It looks very messy and not uniform. So, how did you do this? As you know I am on WP, and couldn’t figure out how to get all the icons matching and in one box/row like that.
Ahh! It’s a trick I read online somewhere. What you do is start a new post then insert your buttons as images, altering their size, links, alignment etc until you are happy with them then click over to the text tab and copy that code. Now you go to the widgets page and paste the code into a text widget and it works! Let me know how you get on 🙂
Woah. That sounds Star Trekkian. I will have to read and follow carefully later when I attempt to change it. Thanks for the info!
🙂 it’s easier than it sounds, all you’re really doing is tricking WP into making the html coding for you
Well, I do enjoy a little trickery.
Also, did you create the buttons or download them from somewhere?
I downloaded the various logos, did a bit of editing and made them in Photoshop. There are lots of free icon sets online but I’m fussy plus I needed a few non-social images (garden, wardrobe etc)…I’m actually considering a theme and colour change soon so I’ll probably have to make them again, haha
Okay. So, I can download them from a certain site? Or did you download them from the actual site, i.e., instagram, bloglovin’ etc. ? So….many……questions…… 🙂
Haha, yes, when I first looked into this it took me a while to work out how I wanted to do it too! Some sites have badges/buttons you can download (Pinterest, Instagram as examples), they often also do the coding for you but I find it easier to just save the badge to my computer and add the link to my profile manually.
If you Google “free blog buttons” there are heaps of sites that offer sets for free and you just save and use the ones you want, linking to your profiles manually using the “new post code trick” that I mentioned earlier 🙂
Thanks Mel!! I appreciate your help. Kitty purrs at you.
Happy to help 😉
I tried instagram like once and never got the big deal about it. Beautiful print on that fabric. What is the content/weave?
It’s 100% poly but has a beautiful drape and feel. I need to play with pattern layout because I would love to use the boarder print at the hem but there is another stripe about halfway up and I want to make sure that doesn’t end up somewhere weird 😉
Hello fellow Kiwi! Haha, I’m only ahead of you by a few months with instagram. Now I’m practically obsessed with it. And to think it’s been around for what, 3 years? Slow Kiwi is slow indeed!
Well we got there in the end, that’s all that matters, hehe 😉
